Picasso is not my favorite but I think there are worse. Anything Vince is obvious, but what about Phils last compositions? Nothing too great there imo. And Believe it or Not was not exactly a stellar Jerry song. Talk about boring. And why doesn't ANYONE every talk about BRent going " ooh ooh "? OR standing in the way of the Devil? Come one that's as cheesy as they ever got.

I'm not bashing either. In the great scheme of things I can't think of any other band that's put out that level of quality. Period.

I think thats why they relegated most of Brent's tunes to the first set as a way to placate his desire to play some of his own stuff.

I do remember the tune he had about Daddy's little girl being kinda trippy comin out of space at the Greeks as one of the few times I liked him being in the second set.

"Just a lil light" had a nice theme but wasn't "Dead" enough for me. I did like the duets he did of covers with Jerry and Phil on things like Gimme Some Lovin.

And Yes they all had some less than Steller songs near the end and the good ones never got the full development I think they could have achieved if they had been as tight as a band as they were in earlier days.
